An aside to Bridget and Dr. V above:
The sudden flooding of the Black Sea in the 6th millennium B.C with Salt Water from the Med, is a great example of what might occur if the Salt was not introduced gradually.
In the case of the appearance of the salt water oceans, it is hard to have that conversation without deciding on the previous sizes and salinity of the main bodies of water.
It's a very interesting topic, the mass extinctions and the adjustments made by the remaining species to the new conditions. Changing salinity would, in my view, be one of the mildest problems faced by life after the planetary electrical discharges. This might be the place to start a thread on rapid speciation, and the possible effects of radiation exposure on the surviving flora and fauna. Perhaps there is already a thread on radiation mutation, rapid changes in species over just a few generations, polyploidy and changing gravitational conditions?
The Black Sea
from encyclopedia com
The Dnieper, Southern Buh, Dniester, and Danube rivers are its principal feeders; the Don and Kuban rivers flow into the Sea of Azov. The rivers flowing into the northern part of the Black Sea carry much silt and form deltas, sandbars, and lagoons along the generally low and sandy northern coast. The southern coast is steep and rocky. The Black Sea has two layers of water of different densities. The heavily saline bottom layer has little movement and contains hydrogen sulfide; it has no marine life. The top layer, much less saline and richer in fish, flows in a counterclockwise direction around the sea. There is little tidal action.
Evidence suggests that more recently, about 7,600 years ago, at the end of a long dry period, it was flooded when the Mediterranean, having again become separate, broke through at the Bosporus, an event that may have scattered farmers from its shores into Europe and Asia. Some scientists have hypothesized that this event happened catastrophically and is the source of the biblical story of the Deluge.
Or perhaps people formerly inhabited the continental shelves, or even lower. There are many fine options. Too much to do. (:
